Sailing to the Isles of Scilly

It’s me! Matt Stone. It’s the summer and after a bumper year of vacations in 2017 (see video links below) we decided in 2018 to focus on paying off debts and saving for buying our first house, however when my parents invited us to go sailing during one of the nicest and sustained heatwaves we’ve ever had in the UK, I managed to convince Dianne we should go (she doesn’t enjoy being on boats!).

We sailed from the Helford River in Cornwall across the Celtic Sea to the Isles of Scilly, the most westerly point in England. We had 3 nights anchored in St Marys and Tresco and enjoyed exploring both of these beautiful islands that look less like England and more like the Caribbean.

The City of Los Angeles

It’s me! Matt Stone. It was our last full day in Los Angeles and we decided to see some local sights. We travelled to Griffith Park to hike up the hill to the world famous Griffith Observatory made famous by Hollywood movies and containing an amazing science museum and of course the observatory. We then went and met our friend James for lunch and ended up at Santa Monica beach and the Pier where my brother Morgan finally got to have a go on his skateboard.

On our trip to Los Angeles where we spent most of our time at Disneyland, Anaheim (video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jY1DTQZ25vA), we also did a day trip into the California desert along Route 66 as far as we could drive in half a day (video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=girtVmd_dow).

Flying the DJI Mavic Pro in Iceland

It’s me! Matt Stone. Welcome to Mavic Matt, my second YouTube channel. Here I’ll showcase the footage captured using my DJI Mavic Pro quadcopter.

We recently went on a trip to Iceland which was my first opportunity to use the Mavic abroad to capture some stunning natural scenery and get used to how the Mavic operated in low temperatures.

CitizenM Hotel Room Review on our London to Paris Eurostar Trip

It’s me! Matt Stone. We visited Paris for the weekend and stayed in our favourite hotel chain CitizenM. If you’ve watched the previous vlogs from our trip to New York City you’ll know how much we enjoyed our stay at the CitizenM.

We started our weekend at the CitizenM in Shoreditch London which because we booked direct through the hotel’s website we got 2 free drinks vouchers which we used to get the slightly pricey cocktails! The next morning we headed out on the Eurostar to Paris Gare du Nord and then caught the RER train to Charles de Gaulle Airport which is where one of the CitizenM hotels is.

The room scenes in this video were filmed at both hotels, I combined them as they are pretty much identical in almost all their hotels.
